When you buy a box dye hair kit, you aren’t given a brush sometimes. If you’re lucky enough get a brush, it’s probably flimsy, making the whole hair coloring process go by super slowly. With the harsh smell of hair dye, you don’t want to be spending more time than you need doing it, especially when you have places to go, people to see and Instagram photos to snap. If you’ve decided to take a long break from the salon and take your hair color into your own hands, it’s worth shelling out for a proper hair color brush. They’re must-haves for at-home styling. 

The best hair color brushes make bleaching, dyeing, highlighting and applying balayage to your hair a breeze. These brushes have stiff bristles, which allow you to get right at your roots. They’re still soft enough to feel gentle on your hair as you cover each strand with dye. On the other end of the brush is a sharp plastic point. That point can part and section off your hair easily, so you can make sure that you’re highlighting the right strands. The brushes are also designed to ensure the dye stays on the brush and doesn’t drip all over everything you own.
